Bill Would Increase Tax Credit For Nebraska Families

Families with children or dependents could qualify for a slightly larger tax credit under a bill introduced in the Nebraska Legislature on Wednesday.

Sen. Kate Bolz's proposal would increase the credit for families who have an adjusted gross income of $29,000 or more per year. That would allow them to claim up to 28 percent of their child care expenses, up from the current 25 percent. The credit is nonrefundable, so it couldn't reduce a family's tax liability to less than zero.

Bolz said she introduced the bill because of increases in the cost of child care. Families making less than $29,000 receive larger tax credits for child care expenses, depending on their income.
